Storyline

Doug Frohmer shoots an official who refused him and his wife an adoption and races -reported on TV- to the home of the woman whose baby they hoped to adopt, taking it and the baby-sitter hostage. He calls provocative radio talk show host Avery Steele, who mobilizes his audience to swarm and protest in unconditional support for 'society's victim' Doug. Matt finds out how he was cheated. Emily goes co-host the radio show, as the only way to counter/control the manipulator and contact Doug. Written by KGF Vissers
